It’s our turn now…

In the heat of the battle, adrenaline pumps furiously through the body, our minds racing to the next task or decision or problem. We grab food when we can, a wink of sleep too before hustling to join forces with mates who have become closer than family as we stare down the 'enemy'. We arrive... Continue Reading →

The Spy and the Duchess

Two pieces of pop culture media have really influenced me this weekend. One was a Hollywood movie and the other was an interview with the Duchess of Sussex. First, the movie - 'The Spy Who Dumped Me', starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon. Released in 2018, you can currently catch it on 'Stan'. It's hardly... Continue Reading →

Not only was it not needed, the work had been done by someone else…last week. It wasn’t so much the wasted... Continue Reading →

The Procrastinating Elephant

Every workplace has one. An elephant in the room so to speak. A job or project that needs completion but no one wants to do it. It’s passed around like a hot potato, usually to the newest recruit, who stares at it in terror, with no idea on how to start. The issue then loiters,... Continue Reading →

The Man in the Arena

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
